The Provident Social Impact Fund aims to support social inclusion. "The programme will invest in activities that seek to alleviate the underlying problems that prevent social inclusion and enjoyment of a full modern life."

The fund will run for 12 months and will distribute £40,000 in grants of £1,500 to £5,000. "Priority will be given to small, locally-based community organisations in areas of social, financial and welfare disadvantage."

Organisations with an annual income over £250,000 cannot apply to this fund.

Fund priorities

Projects should meet one of the following themes:

  • Improving people’s personal finance capabilities (debt and financial advice/education).
  • Improving physical and/or mental health.
  • Providing support which enhances, creates and sustains positive family relationships.
  • Addressing issues of low educational attainment and improving learning outcomes.
  • Providing people with opportunities to reduce inequality, exclusion and disadvantage, including projects which increase access to employment.

"The grants panel will look to fund projects and activities that are addressing need identified through consultation and/or engagement with potential beneficiaries and have a clear focus on the positive results they plan to achieve. Projects need to be inclusive of people in the locality regardless of their background, offer wider benefit and be cost effective."
